During the first half term, our topic in Science is States of Matter.
We will be learning about different materials and the state that they are in. Solids, liquids and gases have different properties, allowing them to move in different ways.
How is a solid different to a gas? How could we describe the movement of a liquid?
We will take part in experiments to find out which materials melt the quickest, helping us to learn about the melting points. Metals have higher melting points and some need a temperature of over 1000 degrees celcius!
Why doesn't the sea disappear? What happens to puddles? Why do the windows steam up?
We will learn about evaporation and condensation before linking these processes to the water cycle.
In the second half term, we will be learning about Animals and their habitats. We will discover what the seven life process are, how to group and classify animals, differences between vertebrates and invertebrates, local habitats and the effect of environmental changes.
